  • Absolutely! We're not just about security; we're also committed to sustainability. After shredding, all paper materials are responsibly recycled.  Here are the top three things that our recycled paper are used for:

    1. Newsprint: Recycled paper often gets turned into newsprint, which is widely used in the production of newspapers.

    2. Cardboard: A significant portion of recycled paper contributes to the manufacturing of cardboard boxes and packaging materials, helping reduce the need for new raw materials.

    3. Toilet and Tissue Paper: Recycled paper fibers can be processed to create toilet paper, facial tissues, and paper towels, offering a sustainable alternative to products made from virgin pulp.

  • We take security extremely seriously. Our team is trained under rigorous guidelines and is both HIPAA-certified and background-checked. We also have stringent controls to limit access to your sensitive material. Plus, for your peace of mind, we provide you with a certificate of destruction for your records.
